It takes countless hours of dedicated craftsmanship and 40 years of experience to create a bespoke build Scharpach master guitar. The prices for Scharpach acoustic guitars start at 9,645 euros for classical models and at 16,800 euros for Archtop guitars.
My work covers a lifespan of experience. Perhaps the value of this experience cannot be “valued” by everyone. The many details – and I don’t include the inlay work of a finished instrument – cover a whole lifetime of experience, and can perhaps be most easily understood by an experienced player.
A small story over Pablo Picasso about understanding value:
“When Pablo Picasso was an old man he was sitting in a cafe in Spain and spending time by quickly drawing some simple sketches just out of fun. After finishing his coffee he crumpled up the drawings on his napkin to throw away. A woman saw this and asked Picasso if she could buy these drawings. Sure, Picasso replied, asking twenty thousand dollars. “What” said the woman, “it took you only two minutes.” “No Ma’am” Picasso replied: “it took me sixty years to draw like this.”
